Throughput in cooperative wireless networks

Diego Armando Giral Ramirez, Cesar Hernandez, Fredy Martinez


Cognitive radio networks emerge as a solution to fixed allocation issues and spectrum scarcity through the dynamic access to spectrum. In cognitive networks, users must make intelligent decisions based on spectrum variation and actions taken by other users. Under this dynamic, cooperative systems can significantly improve quality of service parameters. This article presents the comparative study of the multi-criteria decision-making algorithms SAW and FFAHP through four levels of cooperation (10%, 20%, 50%, 80% y 100%) established between secondary users. The results show the performance evaluation obtained through of simulations and experimental measurements. The analysis is carried out based on throughput, depending on the class of service and the type of traffic.
